Get Your Sexy Back Challenge Day 5: Get in the Mood
A long time ago, all I needed was that look (you know which one I'm talking about) and I was ready to get it on. But these days, I need way more than that to get me going.
While I don't necessarily need a bed full of rose petals and a bubble bath to get me in the mood, as a busy mom I've found that there are a few things my honey can do that create the same effect as those bedroom eyes did a few years ago.
1. Time Alone
So, being alone might seem to be the antithesis of romance, but because I'm around my children an awful lot, I start to feel almost claustrophobic. The last thing I want is more time with someone super close to me. When I'm able to get a break, even if it's a free hour to go grocery shopping (sad as that might sound), I start to feel like myself again. And my old self likes to romp in the sheets.
2. Time Together Without the Kids
As much as I enjoy being alone, an automatic mood enhancer is when my husband and I get some quality alone time, either out of the house or even in the house. Whether it's going out to eat or just watching a movie together on the couch, when we're able to spend an hour or two together that doesn't involve chasing kids or even talking about them, it's like an aphrodisiac.
3. Honey-Done List
I often joke that when my husband knocks items off his honey-do list, or even does stuff around the house that he doesn't typically do, I get a little turned on - but I'm actually being completely serious. As much as he does around the house, when he folds and puts away the laundry (which is usually my job), I get a little tingle. When he snatches up the kids for an impromptu trip to the playground, I'm ready to go.
